Journey into the heart of the Sahara in Algeria with experienced local guides

This unusual 10 day Algeria trip with an expert local guide takes you into the very heart of the Sahara, experiencing days of travel in some of the world’s most remote landscapes and meeting the people who live there.

Starting in the bustling capital of Algiers the journey includes an explore of the labyrinthine like Kasbah of Algiers before heading deep into the country’s Saharan interior, taking in ancient oasis towns along the way and a bounty of fascinating Roman sites such as the spectacular mountainous Roman ruins of Djemila – one of the greatest sets of Roman remains in North Africa.

You’ll also visit the dramatic ravine town of Constantine, the oasis town of Djanet and the jaw-dropping Tassili N’ajjer National Park in the desert region, where there will be chance to camp.

Within the national park there is an incredible array of scenery and experiences, including the stone forest at Tikoubaouine, El Oued, the serene desert ponds at Guelta of Essendilene, 7,000-year-old ancient rock engraving “la vache qui pleure” (the crying cow) and a traditional Tuareg tea ceremony. Visitors coming from afar may well feel like you’ve landed in another world with its otherworldly landscapes, vast dunes and nomadic communities.

Learn about life in this remote and harsh landscape, spending time in the oasis town of Djanet, then finish with more time exploring Algiers.

Tour operator

Specialists in culture-rich trips to Afghanistan, Pakistan, former Soviet Central Asia and Iraq we've long loved the ethos of this operator. The founders met as travel guides in the mountains of Afghanistan and bonded over a shared passion to enable other people to experience the beauty of these lesser visited places.

Working with small groups of a maximum of 12 people and using specialist local guides throughout, their aim is to provide authentic and original experiences for all guests. This small number allows for greater security, flexibility and access to local people and places. Each set itinerary trip is individually designed to coincide with local events or to visit the area at the best time of year be it a ski festival or marathon event!
